Nutty Popcorn Pretzel Sticks with Chocolate Drizzle


I couldn’t resist these fun popcorn pretzel sticks! Peanut butter, nut butter, or seed butter acts as delicious “glue” to bind popcorn to pretzel rods (gluten-free optional). The salty snacks get sweet contrast from all-natural sprinkles and a drizzle of dairy-free chocolate.
